Mulled Wine

It’s that time of year when it feels extra cozy sitting on the couch with a delicious cup of aromatic mulled wine. So why not spice things up and swap out that post-dinner cuppa for an infused wine tea? Make a single batch just for you or treat guests and fill your home with a delicious fragrance. Go on, mix up your mid-week treat and give our favouite mulled wine recipe a try! Wine is a key part of the recipe and we know there is a lot of different types of red wines out there so try a Merlot, Grenache, Zinfandel or Shiraz, no need to go for the expensive stuff, we suggest a more jammy wine and to avoid wines with heavy tannins or lighter red wines like Pinot Noir.


- 750ml delicious red wine
-A couple of strips of lemon zest
- 2 star anise (Save time and use Pepper & Me wine sachet)
- 1 large cinnamon stick
- 3-4 cloves
- 4 tbsp caster sugar
- Optional: 100mls sloe gin.


1. Pour the wine, lemon and sugar into a large saucepan and heat gently (not boil).
2. Stir occasionally until the sugar has dissolved.
3. Once dissolved, remove from the heat and leave to infuse for half an hour.
4. When you're ready to enjoy, add the gin if you fancy and warm it (without boiling).
5. Pour into heatproof glasses or mugs and share the warmth.

HOT TIP: You can keep any leftover mulled wine in the fridge for 24 hours but any longer isn't recommended as the lemon zest may start to ferment.
